Reply Yep, that was Otis. $3.00 in 196? $100.00 today on Ebay. No. Really. Reply man that takes me back….those days of innocent play are long…. long gone Reply i HAD one of those sets! bet mom sold them in the garage sale……… Reply Did you notice that the bad guy had a P-38? And yes, that is Hal Smith. Reply blacks Reply Great post Dan. Here is another great one to watch: I Like Guns – Steve Lee Reply Heh. Good stuff. Did Kevin direct that? Reply John, Don’t know who directed. There is a version #2 of ‘I like guns’. Reply Sure looks like Otis to me. If the kid in the video played with that same gun today, he’d get arrested or shot. Reply The “good old days” may have been better than now, but that doesn’t mean that they were all that good. Reply I remember having the “Man From U.N.C.L.E.” spy briefcase. And thinking about the $7 price tag on the detective set, that was back when minimum wage was $1/hr, so it wasn’t as inexpensive as we might think. Also makes me wonder if that kid got a career in law enforcement as an adult…. or did playing with guns as a kid turn him into a “bad guy”……..one of life’s little mysteries Reply Gee.. every kid wanted one of those. Few had them though. Reply I played with those when I was a kid, and I turned out OK. I’m not sure what went wrong with the rest of you. Reply Really? I’m a bit surprised to hear that you played with toy guns as a kid. Hmmmmmm…… interesting. Reply “The Good Old Days” are right now. (Well, with some exceptions). Reply of course like your website however you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to inform the reality on the other hand I’ll definitely come again again.
